Apple strudel

Terry’s mother was Louise and my mom’s oldest sister. When they used to get together, they made apple strudel. We used their recipe. Getting the dough just right is personal judgement based on experience. The dough must be gently stretched over a floured sheet until …

you can read the recipe when it’s slipped underneath.

Then it’s filled with buttered bread crumbs (to soak up any juices), apples, raisins, dried cranberries, walnuts, sugar, and cinnamon …

and carefully rolled up using the sheet.

We made enough strudel for the TGIF and big pieces for Thais’ family and Justin. It was fun to make one of our mothers’ recipes but I know I’ll never make apple strudel on my own. Too much guesswork. I like recipes with exact measurements and directions.
